4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Damn fine fruity nose, hints of pale malts, a touch of caramel perhaps, lots of citrus and floral hops, pine. Solid hop aroma. Yes. Pours golden, nice head and lace. The flavor is nice and quenching burst of citrus, pine, and floral hops. Light malt base provides just a bit of sweetness and a little balance. Mostly bright and engaging with hops. Love the lower ABV. Drank the whole growler and felt great the next day. Good shit here!

Slightly cloudy gold, decent head. Nice hoppy aroma - lots of citrus and some other fruity notes. Flavor si pretty much what you’d expect, given the aroma - grapefruit and other citrus flavors, with maybe a touch of brown sugar. Very tasty. Brewgrass 2010.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Lightly hazed, golden-yellow body with a sustained, just barely off-white head fed by some streaks of sustained carbonation.
Smell: Citrusy, fruity grapefruit aroma, growing a bit as it warms, and paired with pine resins and lightly floral hints. Yeah, you’ve got some malt accents of pale malted barley and honey, but, predominately, it’s a hoppy nose.
Taste: Pale malts with hints of honey and a flash of sweetness, then, resinous pine, white grapefruit lending plenty of pith and a slight citric quality. Moderately bitter. Meager malty rebound gives a bit more honey and golden syrup. Drying, bitter finish with a lingering resinous flavor in the mouth.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight discernible oiliness to the mouthfeel.
Drinkability: A good, no-nonsense, punchy IPA.
